Bridge for All is the complete learn and play programme developed for the English Bridge Union (EBU). All teaching materials and student notes are included in the course fee however students will be expected to purchase the Bridge for All Coursebook covering the whole year and costing £22. As a bonus, students are given 12 months membership of the English Bridge Union free of charge, which brings a range of benefits. The courses are comprehensive and fun.
All of our Bridge for All teachers have been trained to teach the course by the EBU. They are members of the EBU Teachers’ Association (EBTA), which provides all the training needed to be a successful teacher.
Further information can be found on the EBU website.
Our beginners course runs each year starting in the autumn. The course is based on the English Bridge Union’s ‘Bridge for All’ programme, using the Acol bidding system. It is a carefully structured course that starts out by assuming no previous knowledge of cards. It is also suitable for anyone who has played a little Bridge with friends and wants to learn more.
The most recent course sequence started in October 2018.
